Hundreds of UCON members urged legislators to pass reform package
On June 26, California’s State Legislature agreed to advance Governor Newsom’s streamlining package that will accelerate delivery of transportation, water, and energy infrastructure projects, unlocking $180 billion in funds over the next decade.
United Contractors was amongst a coalition of more than 120 industry leaders urging the State Legislature to adopt the Governor’s proposal to streamline permitting, cut red tape, reduce time-consuming litigation, and speed up project delivery while saving state and local governments and businesses hundreds of millions of dollars.
“This is the most ambitious effort to cut red tape and streamline regulations in a half century,” said Emily Cohen, UCON Executive Vice President. “We applaud the State Legislature for adopting Governor Newsom’s infrastructure streamlining proposal as part of this year’s state budget. By reducing hurdles and streamlining regulations, California can get to work faster building vital transportation, water and energy infrastructure that will improve the lives of all Californians while creating hundreds of thousands of industry jobs across the state.”
Hundreds of UCON members engaged in the organization's grassroots campaign to urge the state legislature to pass this reform package.
United Contractors has long championed many of the proposals included in the Governor’s regulatory reform package to create a better business environment for our contractors and increase delivery of critical infrastructure projects across California—keeping our industry moving ahead.
